Granite has been used throughout history from statues and structures around the world down to countertops and furniture in homes today.
Mount Rushmore and The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. are both granite.
Granite is the most popular stone type used in the countertop industry. This natural stone most often quarried as a “dimension stone” (a natural rock material that has been cut into blocks or slabs of specific length, width and thickness). It is hard enough to resist most abrasion, strong enough to bear significant weight, inert enough to resist weathering and it accepts a brilliant polish. These characteristics make it a very desirable and useful for both kitchen and bathroom countertops.
Different types of granite have been used for thousands of years in both interior and exterior applications. Indoors, polished granite slabs and tiles are used in countertops, tile floors, stair treads and many other practical and decorative features.
Pricing is based off of popularity and availability. However, granite is frequently selected because it is a prestige material, used in projects to produce impressions of elegance, durability and lasting quality ideal for fabricating beautiful granite countertops.
AS DURABLE AS IT GETS
THEY ARE DURABLE
Diamond is the only natural material that offers greater hardness than granite tops, and we are yet to receive an order for diamond countertops! Granite can withstand extremely high temperatures, so a hot pan will not cause damage to a granite countertop, unlike wood, laminate and tile. Granite is also scratch, chip, and crack resistant.
VIRTUALLY MAINTENANCE FREE
Homeowners with stone countertops really do not have to do much to maintain a pristine look to their countertops. Keeping them sealed leaves them easy too wipe and resistant to bacteria build-up.
Granite countertops last so long, they are often reused in remodels when everything else has been replaced. Granite countertops and other natural stone countertops are strong and durable, so you can ensure they last a long time while maintaining their quality and condition.
